Drawing 2014 opened at Toronto’s John B. Aird Gallery on Thursday evening to a packed house. Over 150 people were in attendance to take in the Drawing 2014 awards ceremony and celebrate with the 27 artists who were accepted into this 15th Annual Juried Exhibition.

Five awards were announced and handed out at the opening. First Prize was awarded to Toronto artist Mary Kainer for her mixed media drawings, Frack I and Frack II. The Second Prize was awarded to Toronto artist Lumir Hladik for two works, a mixed media drawing entitled Vertical When Wet, and a mixed media drawing object entitled Avoid My Den. Third Prize went to Amanda Burk of North Bay for her large scale graphite on paper drawing Quiescence. Two Honorable Mentions were awarded in the form of gift certificates from Curry’s Art Supplies. Susan Avishai received an Honorable Mention for two works constructed of shirt fabric and wire entitled Gyre and Gimble and He’s Come Undone.
